Step 2 (Cherry)

Read, Read, Read!

Each time you read a book with your child, color a leaf on your paper reading log or record the title in the app.

Step 3 (Cherry)

After reading 100 books, come to the Library for your first sticker!

Step 4 (Cherry)

Each time you reach the 100-Book milestone, you earn a badge/special sticker and you can start a new reading log (PDF).

Step 5 (Cherry)

When you reach 500 books, you pick a free book to keep! Once you reach 1,000 books, you get a certificate of achievement and a special prize pack! Visit the Library to pick up your prize(s).
